    Wide angle adapter on micro 4/3 and NEX?

    Im thinking about getting a Raynox DCR-6600PRO 0.66x wide angle adapter so that I can use it on my micro 4/3 and NEX lenses. Did anyone ever try this lens out?

    My main concerns are:

    1- optical quality
    2 - Weight stress on the micro 4/3 and NEX lenses (this little fella weights 178g)

    I know its hard, but now that Im using 2 systems I try minizining the costs by using accessories that I can use on both.

    everything I have ever seen like this doesnt work out being optically sound. Nobody can properly predict what the results will be like, but I have seen Raynox on bridge cameras like FZ50 and it left me with the feeling that it had soft edges and less contrast all over. Considering FZ50 owners had no choice maybe not a bad compromise, but for interchangeable lens cameras its a waste of money.

    Most of these devices produce pretty awful edge definition and often add chromatic aberration. The best I've seen was a very pricey Sony add-on but not being designed for the lenses, it's a gamble.
